Residents in the Dearborn Hills neighborhood affected by the sewer separation project beginning this month can get updates on the construction by visiting a new website: http://dearbornconstruction.wordpress.com/
The new website can also be accessed from the City of Dearborn site. Look for the construction icon on the home page.
Residents will find a schedule, answers to frequently asked questions, traffic information, map, project details and timely updates. They can sign up to be automatically notified when new information is posted on the website.
They also have the option of leaving a question of a general nature regarding the construction in the Dearborn Hills area. Answers that will assist other residents with understanding or coping with the construction will be posted for the public.
Residents affected by the sewer separation project are also welcome to call the city’s onsite Construction Engineering Technician, Kelli Moore, at 313-613-1994, or Project Engineer Soud El-Jamaly at 313-801-8578.
The sewer separation project will impact Dearborn residents who live east of Telegraph, west of Outer Drive, south of Cherry Hill and north of the Rouge River in 2012-13.
The construction is part of the federally-mandated water pollution control project commonly called the CSO project.
Separating storm sewers from sanitary sewers will reduce the amount of untreated sewage that is released into the Rouge River during wet weather events. Sewer separation will also involve the installation of new water mains and new roads, which will improve the city’s infrastructure.
